- Acquired 100% of the Don Pancho polymetallic zinc-lead-silver-manganese project located in the Province of Huaral, in the Department of Lima Peru
- located in a prolific polymetallic mineral belt in central Peru with several operating mines in the area including the world class Iscaycruz and Yauliyacu polymetallic mines operated by Glencore-Xtrata Plc located 50 kilometers to the north-northwest
Toronto, Ontario – Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE: TTC) (“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of the acquisition of the Don Pancho |polymetallic zinc-lead-silver-manganese project in Peru.
Tartisan Resources Corp. has now acquired 100% of the Don Pancho polymetallic zinc-lead-silver-manganese project located in the Province of Huaral, in the Department of Lima Peru, 105 kilometers north-northeast of Lima, comprising one concession of 600 hectares and located approximately between 3,660 meters and 4,487 meters above sea level. A Technical Report on the Don Pancho Polymetallic Project (Zn,Pb,Ag,Mn) NI 43-101 has been filed on SEDAR (2014).
The Don Pancho Project is located in a prolific polymetallic mineral belt in central Peru with several operating mines in the area including the world class Iscaycruz and Yauliyacu polymetallic mines operated by Glencore-Xtrata Plc located 50 kilometers to the north-northwest. Additionally, Trevali Mining Corporation’s Santander silver-lead- zinc mine is located 9 kilometers to the east and Buenaventura’s silver-lead-zinc Uchucchacua mine is located 63 kilometers to the north, (10 million ounces of silver produced in 2011). Infrastructure is considered excellent with ready access and a power line crossing the property en route to the Santander mine.
Don Pancho Project
Previous exploration on the property included an extensive surface mapping and sampling program, geophysics and a 2021 metre diamond drilling program of 6 holes conducted by a private Peruvian company.
Mapping and sampling shows an extensive NNW-SSE trending breccia zone measuring over 800 metres in length and 150 to 200 metres in width. There are numerous old workings and underground drifts located within this zone. The 2014 diamond drilling program shows large intersections of polymetallic mineralization, including 40 metres of 0.88% Zn, 0.40% Pb and 7.7 g/t Ag, 22.65 metres of 1.00% Zn, 0.26% Pb and 6.85 g/t Ag and 1.15 metres of 4.38% Zn, 3.25% Pb and 61.1 g/t Ag, (see Duran’s Press Release September 2, 2014). Surface sampling from the previous operator has revealed very interesting values, including 13.9 metres of 28.1 g/t Ag, 2.43% Pb, and 2.42% Zn, 2.8 metres of 28.1g/t Ag, 1.06% Pb, and 9.07% Zn and 13 metres of 8.38g/t Ag, 0.39% Pb, and 2.22% Zn. Sampling of underground workings in Yanapallaca area before the previous operators retuned 106 g/t Ag, 3.26% Pb and 17.56% Zn over 2.00 metres. (see 43-101 Technical Report on Don Pancho filed December 30th, 2014 on Sedar). Please note that the true width of the mineralization both on the surface and underground workings cannot yet be determined as the controls of the mineralization is yet to be fully understood.
A “Stage 1 Program” of geophysics, diamond drilling and potentially underground drifting is envisioned to commence in 2017. Structural analysis on the geology suggests previous drilling did not properly test the potential of the property. Tartisan has acquired the core and data.
In summary under the terms found in the Defineative Agreement Tartisan has acquired a 100% undivided interest in the property by paying $50,000 and issuing 500,000 common shares. Upon completion of 5,000 metres of drilling and/or underground development a further 150,000 shares are payable, and if a NI 43-101 compliant resource is published, a further 150,000 shares are payable and if the Company loses control of the project either by sale or joint-venture, a further 200,000 shares are payable. Duran Ventures will retain a 2% net smelter return royalty, of which half (1%) can be purchased by Tartisan for US$500,000.
Tartisan Resources Corp. common shares are listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE:TTC). Currently, there are 64,564,345 shares outstanding (84,913,414 fully diluted)..|Tartisan additionally owns a 20% + equity stake in Eloro Resources Ltd . as well as holding a 2% NSR in the La Victoria Project in North-Central Peru.
